The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Ellie's son Roger is out from San Francisco ( we switched places as he is a New York native) and Ellie had me over for dinner. It was a wonderful visit as always and it was great to see Roger again. I love that Ellie was in her housedress and I took my shoes off and Roger wore a raincoat to the dinner table. The conversation was as interesting. What a great night.
We finished off with viewing of the Les parapluies de Cherbourg (Umbrellas of Cherbourg) starring a very young and beautiful Catherine Deneuve and directed by Jacques Demy. I had never seen it before but both Ellie and Roger had seen it 100s of times. Very interesting flick. It is sung through and I was sad when Roger said Catherine didn't do her own singing. Probably the Marni Nixon of France did it! Quelle I don't know what!
Anyway it was a perfect choice on such a rainy night.
Merci Ellie et Roget!!!
